Husk-to-Home siding is a fiber-plastic composite (FPC) material comprised of recycled high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE) and rice husk. HDPE is a low cost, recyclable, and formaldehyde-free material while the rice husk is used because of its natural resistance to moisture and termites. To ensure that the material is resistant to the elements, Husk-to-Home has conducted extensive flexural, compressive, soak, termite, and accelerated aging tests. These tests are conducted on a prototype board, and were performed to the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standards where applicable. Husk-To-Home plans to first sell the board in Southeastern US, targeting contracting companies. Once established as a profitable benefit corporation (b corp), Husk-To-Home will expand to create a replacement for wood composites as a multifunctional material that will be available both here in the US and internationally.
